Summary: I have a canon rebel T3i and the lens that came with that camera, after a year, ending up locking. This new I ordered is pretty good as a replacement lens for picture taking. I would recommend anyone who needs a replacement lens or an extra one and you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars.
Summary: I broke the lens that came with the camera so I had to buy a replacement. I use this lens for photographing people as well as landscapes. There are better lenses for both applications, but this one is a nice compromise between the two.
Summary: I dropped my Canon lens and it malfunctioned so I was looking for a cheaper replacement so that I could try to get mine fixed. I saw this kit and the kit total was cheaper than some just lenses so I thought I would give it a try.
